Annual Colfax Avenue Show

Bill Guerriero, A&D Motel

Our annual Colfax Avenue show celebrates the life, history, grit, glitter and glamour of Colorado’s most famous avenue. Use Colfax Avenue as your muse for this unique show. Colfax Avenue is a street with a life, breath and character all its own. Its fame, or infamy (depending on how you look at it) lies in everything from the neon signs that light up its intersections to the thousands of people who pass through via car, bike or bus every single day. We invite our artists and creatives to use Colfax Avenue past, present and future and everything that surrounds and encompasses it, as your muse. What inspires, intrigues or shocks you about Denver’s most famous avenue? What makes you think, what makes you stop and take another look? Where do you find creativity on, in and around this iconic street? All mediums are welcome and encouraged to apply for this call.

The exposure for this event will be strong, to include our ongoing outreach and social media efforts - website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, other social networking sites, eNewsletter, postcards, artists’ networks, assorted city, chamber, and neighborhood association emails and more. In addition, this show is in conjunction with our annual festival, Colfax ArtFest. We will seek additional exposure available to us as a State-Certified Creative District. This is terrific exposure for 40 West Gallery, and the artists featured in this show!
